I found the citrus degreasers work great on brake dust. Get Simple Green or other similar stuff. Spray it on, let it sit a few minutes, brush and rinse. After it's clean, shine the wheels with car wax and it will be easy to clean next time.
An even better solution is to switch to MetalMaster brake pads. They make essentially no brake dust, they work well, and they are inexpensive. This is the first thing I changed when I got my car. Don't wait till the stock pads wear out; do it now. Check any issue of Roundel or European Car for ads.
: What is the best way to remove those stubborn brake dust stains on my 2spoke BMW wheels. Tried scrubbing to heck, but it didn't work. Will wheel acid get it off?Thanks
